Cyberinfrastructure for Environmental Nanoinformatics

Hosted by the UC Center for Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology

Tuesday, May 07, 2013
8:30 PM - 5:30 PM
UCLA California NanoSystems Institute

The UC Center for Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology (UC CEIN) and the NSF iPlant Collaborative are pleased to announce a one-day workshop to address the need to leverage currently available cyberinfrastructure capabilities in order to expand, further develop, and provide access to pertinent data, data mining, and modeling tools across disciplines and research communities dealing with various aspects of biology, plant science, nanotechnology, and the environment. 

The workshop will bring together experts in the field to:

1. Review the state-of-the-art implementation of cyberinfrastructure for environmental nanoinformatics
2. Discuss/propose guidelines for the development/hosting of open-source nanoinformatics tools
3. Introduce computational and informatics tools
4. Explore synergistic activities and identify collaborative opportunities among various disciplines including, but not limited to, environmental, toxicological and plant sciences, environmental protection, nanomedicine and nanotechnology.

The workshop is free to attend, but space is limited. Registration is required.  For more information and a detailed agenda, visit:
